Inking Royalty Blog Hop – Easter

Posted by on Mar 18, 2020 in Uncategorized | 9 comments

Welcome to the Inking Royalty’s March Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. Hop, hop! This month’s projects celebrate Easter, so prepare yourself for a variety of gorgeous, Easter-themed projects. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

There is a new floral stamp set coming and it is super fun to color!  The Ornate Style stamp set will be apart of the 2020 Annual catalog. It is also apart of the Ornate Garden suite that will be available for customers to order on April 1st

  • The flowers were colored with Stampin’ Blends.
  • The Costal Weave embossing folder added a little texture t the background
  • Using stampin dimensionals helps make the layers pop

I’m sure that there could be great debate about using gray for an Easter card and some meanings being pulled out by using it with purple and yellow. Something along the lines of We have been living in darkness yet, through Easter we experience light (yellow) because of Christ’s sacrifice (purple royalty). And really I wish I could tell you I was thinking about all that at the time. But, the truth is I just liked the color combination.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Jackie Beers at Blue Line Stamping. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Posted by on Mar 6, 2020 in Uncategorized | 1 comment

Hello friends! Today is the Blogging Friends Blog Hop! We are all sharing inspiration basses on the theme spring wedding. I will be totally honest with you. I had a card idea in mind and made the cards. Unfortunately, I totally forget the wedding part.  Instead of entirely remaking my card, I decided to share them with you anyway with the idea that if you just simply change the sentiment you have a wonderful wedding card.

The stamp set I decided to use is the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. I truly love using this stamp set. You can color it and it is beautiful. You can use it in simple stamping and it is beautiful.  This makes for a very versatile set. That along with the sentiments just really makes it awesome!

I also used the Woven Heirloom stamp set and the Kindness and Compassion stamp set. Both of these sets have wonderful sentiments.  I really like the font of both.

I reach for the thinking of you in Woven Heirloom all the time!  I also use the Thank you in Kindness and Compassion just as much! So let’s get on with why you are here! Cards, right???

Thank You Card

  • Each card features a Magnolia simply stamped in Highland Heather on Purple Posey paper
  • The sentiment is also stamped in the same Highland Heather
  • The stitched rectangle dies gives a little extra details

I can see giving a set of the above card to a bride for her to write thank you’s. Just change the colors to match the wedding colors and you have a sweet and useful gift.  Now, for the cards, you would definitely have to change the sentiments

  • I love the simplest idea behind each card. As a card maker, it is like going back to your roots when you find a stamp that is this pretty just stamped
  • The card base is Mossy Meadow

Good Morning Magnolia

  • I love the combination of So Saffron and Highland Heather
  • The Woven Heirloom sentiments are just absolutely beautiful! I love the vintage feel.

Sympathy card

  • If you want to set up the design adding a sentiment on a separate layer is always a good place to start
  • Also, it is very hard to tell but the paper was embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder

So, here is the question of what stamp set makes these cards into perfect wedding cards???  My first thought is Last a Lifetime

Other choices would be Forever Blossoms, or Bloom and Grow.
